Responding to the Recommendations: A Proposed Approach pdf icon PDF 964 KB



Representatives from the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (OCCG) and the Oxford University Hospitals Foundation Trust (OUH) will attend to present the report (HHOSC7).


The paper outlines the approach that Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust are proposing to take to address the outcome of the referral to the Secretary of State.  It is shared in draft form to enable the Joint OSC to ensure the Oxfordshire CCG is covering all aspects and to comment and input before presenting it to the relevant Health Boards for approval.  


The paper sets out the scope of the work, an outline timetable and the workstreams that will be established. These include:


·         Stakeholder involvement and patient experience - the purpose of this work stream is to ensure that the work is undertaken with stakeholders in an open and transparent way and to seek and use the views of women and families who have used the services since 1 October 2016

·         Service description – the purpose of this work stream is to provide the description of the full range of maternity services available to women and their families. 

·         Interdependencies – the purpose of this work stream is to describe the future vision for the Horton General Hospital and to identify what, if any service interdependencies there are which may be impacted by any decision on provision of obstetric services.

·         Activity and Population Modelling – the purpose of this work stream is to collate and analyse activity and develop activity projections that take into account population growth for areas that access services in Oxfordshire.

·         Option development and appraisal - the purpose of this work stream is to ensure that all potential options are identified and appraised openly and consistently. 

·         Addressing Clinical Senate Recommendations - the purpose of this work stream is to ensure that all of the Clinical Senate recommendations have been addressed. 


Oxfordshire CCG welcomes comments on any aspects of the plan but in particular would like the Horton Joint HOSC to:


·         Agree the scope of the work

·         Review and agree the draft engagement plan

·         Agree the approach to option development and appraisal

·         Agree to the outline timescales

·         Identify whether there are any aspects missing from the plan
